Life is a struggle
by susan raine
Life is a struggle it 22months since i lost my husband and best friend,we had both been preparing to retire, house newly renovated,finances sorted plans made we had both worked hard and felt we deserved our retirement,four weeks before my husband who was a well fit healthy man went to the doctors with abdominal discomfort,Ibs said the doctor one week before retirement he was admitted to hospital with abdominal pain.After the usual scans examinations etc,we were given the devastating news that he had months to live,only it wasnt months it was six days!! in those few days we talked and talked given the chance to tell each other how we loved our family and each other and as a family we were able to say goodbye,I think how lucky we were to have this time and feel blessed having the husband I had and the family I have got but on my black days like today I wish with all of my heart I could be with him. sometimes God places roadblocks in our way that we do not want to deal with but we need to stay strong to continue the journey.some days it is difficult to smile when you are totally broken.
